[image]Ganges River Delta - Image courtesy Jacques Descloitres, MODIS Land Team
The combined delta of the Ganges and Brahmaputra Rivers is the largest in the world. This true-color image from the Moderate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) shows both the delta and sediment flowing into the Bay of Bengal. Fed by monsoon rains and Himalayan snowmelt, the rivers often flood. These floods often cause catastrophic damage, but also enrich the soil.Launched in December 1999, MODIS flies aboard NASA's Terra spacecraft...

Fog stretched over northern India on December 17, 2004, and mixed with a river of haze that flowed west and south across Bangladesh and over the Bay of Bengal. According to news reports from the area, over the weekend of December 18 and 19, the foggy, smoggy conditions caused numerous deadly accidents in the Indian states of Bihar, Haryana, and Uttar Pradesh. All forms of transportation were delayed throughout the weekend, including air, train, and road traffic.In this image from the Moderate Re...

The Ganges River forms an extensive delta where it empties into the Bay of Bengal. The delta is largely covered with a swamp forest known as the Sunderbans, which is home to the Royal Bengal Tiger. It is also home to most of Bangladesh, one of the world’s most densely populated countries. Roughly 120 million people live on the Ganges Delta under threat of repeated catastrophic floods due to heavy runoff of meltwater from the Himalayas, and due to the intense rainfall during the monsoon season....
